from a safety stand point, my understanding is that one is better off on -1- tranquilizer, even at a high dose, than on 2+ tranqs. also...getting rid of seroquel would probably decrease sedation a good bit, even if the doctor increased the zyprexa a bit.

-all- tranqs can cause TD, even clozapine. the 'atypicals' are a tricksy bunch of drugs, in large part because the data on them is mostly paid for by the drug makers. now that zyprexa and seroquel are generic, it seems that shrinks are more open about problems from their use...

and their solution is latuda, rexulti, etc. lol. its...ridiculous. zyprexa is supposed to have a lower TD risk than risperidone or the older/"typical" tranqs, so...that's a good thing, of course.

have you tried abilify or the new d2 partial agonists? i don't know that they're "ground breaking" or whatever, but if you could tolerate one of those and if it kept your problems under control, that might help reduce sedation, help you lose weight, etc. on the of the new d2 partial agonists (i forget which one...) sometimes causes prolactin elevation, just like risperidone. ugh.

wish i could be of more help, but...that's pretty much all i've got for you.
